For every profession, endeavor, or wherever party you had last night, nothing beats a cup of Joe to make you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. One of the greatest inventions in home appliances today is the dual coffee maker. This appliance enables you to brew coffee from a K cup or ground coffee beans. All of these devices are capable of brewing individual cups or an entire Carafe.
Normally, each brand or variant of the dual coffee maker has their own differences in making coffee. If you are unsure of what type suits you, check out reviews and demos to find the best dual coffee maker for you and your household. One of the great advantages of this device is that you can fuel an entire crew or just yourself for an entire night by brewing one Carafe, or if you prefer to mellow down with a single cup, that’s perfectly fine too. Here’s how you do it:
● Choose Your Coffee
There are two inserts in your machine, one for K cup and the other for ground coffee. If you choose a K cup, place it in the appropriate insert and place it in the tray. For coffee grounds, you can use the basket for the Carafe and a smaller insert for individual cups. When using coffee grounds, make sure you read the instructions for the amount of grounds needed to make your required serving.
● Carafe or Cup
The appliance is capable of brewing a single cup or tumbler or one Carafe. If you are going to use either one, set the machine to which container you’d want to pour your coffee over. Place the cup or Carafe into its respective stations and make sure it is secured and aligned properly. Depending on the two, the amount of coffee and water will vary for each brew.
If you are making a single cup, then you can put that same amount of water into the reservoir of your machine. For Carafe, you may need to put on more water depending on how much you’d like to make. There are indicators in the basin, or instructions are given in the manual to make sure you put adequate amounts of water for each serving.
After you’ve placed the necessary components and ingredients into the machine, select the appropriate settings for your needs. There are two major options you’ll need to check; one is the source of coffee you are going to brew, either from a K cup or from ground coffee. Carafes generally don’t have an option for K cup – it’s usually either ground or bold coffee. The next is the container where the coffee will pour into.
● Brew and Serve
Press the brew or start button and wait for the machine to finish brewing. Be careful of the parts that heat up during this process and avoid getting in contact with it. A sound or light display usually prompts you that your coffee is done. Serve and enjoy.
Regardless of what brand you use, you can have your premium home-brewed coffee in minutes from the comforts of your home. Make sure you read the instructions of your maker before you start as well as maintenance procedures to make sure your machine gives you quality brew consistently for a long time.
